Atlanta Falcon and New England Patriots fans make predictions as the city of Houston ramps up for Super Bowl LI.
HOUSTON, TEXAS, UNITED STATES (FEBRUARY 4, 2017) (REUTERS) – NFL fans were picking sides Saturday (February 4) as the Super Bowl showdown between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons neared.
The Patriots will be making a record ninth appearance in the NFL’s championship game and many fans found it hard to pick against the New England juggernaut when asked who will win.
“It’s gonna be the Patriots in a rout 40-0 over the Falcons, here we go, all day, New England all day, Tommy B!” exclaimed one fan.
But there are believers in the Falcons and their high flying offense.
“It’s probably gonna be a close game so I have the Atlanta Falcons over the New England Patriots 24-17, probably,” said one.
The Falcons held one last practice at Rice University while the Patriots filled their final day before the game with a family photo day on the field at NRG Stadium.
If the Patriots win it will be a record fifth crown for quarterback Tom Brady and head coach Bill Belichick.
